From the Paper:

"The Grimm brothers' unique writing style can be seen in their use of masculine and feminine symbols as well as their use of realism. These men also used a great deal of religious imagery and themes, pitting evil against good. Many critics have expressed various opinions regarding the collective works and individual stories of these two men. Some critics believe that certain patterns in the brothers' stories can be explained by psychoanalyzing the text for certain types of symbolism. For the most part, the original and modern critics have both been pleased with the compilation and story telling skills of these two men. Some critics believe that a large part of the struggle that occurs in Hansel and Gretel is due to symbolism involving gender conflicts around and between the main character."
